Back to the Future II (1989)

The second installment in the Back to the Future trilogy offered viewers a sneak peek into the year 2015, and while some of their predictions are a little laughable now (we’re looking at you, automatic jacket driers), they actually got a lot right: flat screen televisions, wearable technology, video calling, and hands-free gaming, just to name a few. Maybe it’s not so crazy to laugh at automatic jacket driers; it could be just a matter of time.

    Nadream70 its definitely been proven that reality tv didn’t actualy become “mainstream” til the 2000’s. So yeah there’s been reality tv BEFORE truman but it didn’t become super relevant in our society til just after.

    it’s aslo fair to say that we indulge in reality tv just like the watchers of truman did because something like the real world was more like entertainment, but now we watch things like real house wives or kardashian whatever and we’re actually invested like we think we know these people, their our friends, ect. we buy their products, we make them famous on social media. Its a completely different realm you know? very interesting….
